Telluride Tourism Board
It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Telluride

Peak Season: Late November to March

During these prime ski months, Telluride is at its busiest and priciest, but well worth it for the powdery slopes. Winter temperatures average in the 20s.

Off Season: May to September

Things do quiet down when the ski resorts close for the summer, but visitors continue to take advantage of pleasant (70-degree) weather and scattered festivals; hotels promote activity packages; and outdoor enthusiasts pile in for fresh mountain air and off-season discounts.

Sweet Spot: October to mid-November; April

Spring skiing is still possible in early April, and the slopes are just beginning to open in November, following a lovely fall foliage season. Both times see fewer crowds and mild temps as compared to winter.
